[Recipe] Almond Butter Cup Shake


September 16, 2016

chocolate shake

This chocolate shake is one that I happily make for my little guy when he asks for his “shake.” It’s packed with some healthy fats and a boost of protein to support his growing body and mind. It’s a nice treat that you wouldn’t expect to call “healthy.” As you read the ingredient list, you’ll notice that I am pretty loose with my measurements. I hate to dirty utensils that I don’t necessarily have to! So I guesstimate! Feel free to play around with the measurements as you see fit.

Almond Butter Cup Shake


  • 1-2 frozen bananas
  • 2 Tbsp cacao*
  • 1-2 scoops Perfect Supplements Collagen
  • 2-3 heaping spoonfuls of almond butter (look for one free of any added sugar)
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 scoop Hyperbiotics prebiotic powder, optional (to feed the microbiome, of course, optional)
  • enough of your milk of choice (I prefer almond milk or coconut milk) to reach desired consistency. Usually about 2 cups or so, depending on how many bananas you used!


  1. Toss all ingredients into blender and mix until well blended! Add more almond milk until you reach the desired consistency!
  2. Enjoy!

Makes enough for 2 shakes

    Recipe looks delicious! I jave everything but hyperbiotics.
    Do you have more information about the hyperbiotics? It is the first time I heard about it.
    Thank you

      Hi Kate! Hyperbiotics is a company that carries high quality probiotic supplements. While the probiotics provide healthy bacteria, this prebiotic powder feeds the good bacteria. 🙂 If you don’t have it, the shake will be just as tasty.. but it’s an easy added bonus for gut health if you do!
